This Single Guy Drew His Imaginary Girlfriend into Stunning Self-Portraits

Pin it


A single guy with a knack for drawing is capturing hearts in China and Japan with a beautifully illustrated series of self-portraits that feature himself alongside his 2D girlfriend. The anime-inspired illustrations, which initially surfaced on the Chinese social network Weibo, have actually been going viral in neighboring Japan, thanks to the popular Japanese Internet forum 2ch.

The moving drawings show a couple in different “coupley” scenarios — he feeds her dumpling soup, she gives him a present, he rests his head in her lap on the couch — that are so cute you almost forget she’s only real online.
